Tales of the Town.
The tent in which gospel
meetings have been held for
some weeks past , has been re
moved from its location just
north of the court house. Meet
ings were held all last week
notwithstanding the fact that a
s'treet fair was in progress , and
every night the little band of
worshippers met and held di
vine services , heedless of the
throng of revellers that passed
up and down the sidewalk in
front of the tent. Sometimes
when the sound of the merry-go-
round organ had ceased for the
moment , or a lull came in the
clamor and turmoil of the carni
val , the strains of the little cab-
i n e t organ could be heard
bravely playing its accompani
ment to some good old gospel
hymn. Then a great billow of
noise and confusion would break
over the little tent and when it
in turn had spent its force and
rolled away , the sound of a
voice lifted in prayer would
reach the ears of such of the
street fair revellers who chanc
ed to be passing the tent at
that moment. It seemed as
though the worshippers were
laboring against tremendous
odds , but doubtless the God
who hears the prayer of the
little child above the thunder
storm , heard all that was sung
and said within the walls of the
little tent that stood in the
midst of the street fair.
The issue of The Tribune con
taining the picture ol Stone
street in 1800 , attracted much
attention and many and varied
were the comments made by the
older citizens who examined it.
To each one the picture called
up some different memory , and
one story recalled another until
wherever two or three gray
haired men were seen gathered
together , and one of them hold
ing a copy of The Tribune , it
was certain that the past was
being lived over again and
strange tales being related and
long forgotten incidents re
called. It is remarkable how
clear is the memory of most of
these old men. All that Is nee.
essary is an incident like the
appearance of the picture to
arouse sluggish reccollections
and then to these men things
that happened forty years ago
are as the things that happened
yesterday , and tongues are loosened
ened and the conversation on
such occasions is very interest
ing to the younger generations.
Forty years from now we will
all be old , gray haired men and
when we look at a picture of
Stone street as it is today we ,
too , will have strange tales to
tell , but they will not be so ex
citing , neither will they be such
vivid rellections of a real stren
uous life as are the stories that
the old men of today tell us.
The teachers' institute will
be in session next week. The
teachers are coming from all
over the county to spend a
week in study and review and
to better prepare themselves
for the duties that they are to
resume when the summer vaca
tion is ended. There will be
bright faced and enthusiastic
young men and women , each
with a definite object in view ,
and their presence will be an
inspiration , as it has always
been , to those who are inter
ested in the public school and
all that the institution stands
for. Falls City has had some
notable gatherings in the way
of conventions , assemblies , con
ferences , etc. , but no meeting
has ever been held in the city
that is of more real importance
i than the Richardson county
teacher's institute. A large
and successful institute means
better school work next year
and if there is anything more
important than that , we would-
like to know what it is.
Very few people , outside of
thosedircctly interested in ed
ucational work , realize the
nature of the talent engaged
for the special features of the
institute. Lecturers of wide
reputation and great ability
come here every year and add
their contribution to the intel
lectual betterment of the town.
Taking it all together , the insti
tute is a fine thing for the town
and the teachers will find them
selves ver i welcome.
